Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Sarah Palin Tests Positive for Coronavirus After Flouting NYC Vaccination Requirement

HeadlineJan 25, 2022

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said Monday she has tested positive for coronavirus. Palin’s announcement prompted a U.S. district judge in New York to delay the start of Palin’s defamation trial against The New York Times, which was set to begin on Monday. Palin has refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19, telling a conservative conference last month, “It will be over my dead body that I’ll have to get a shot.” The New York Times reports that on Saturday Palin dined indoors at Elio’s Italian restaurant in Manhattan despite a city ordinance requiring customers to provide proof of vaccination.
